One of the largest changes to Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is the fact that there are much larger areas to explore, and with it, more items to find and chests to open. One of these activities involve finding Essences that will offer a Skill Point, Health upgrade, of Force Upgrade. You’ll find one such Essence in the Southern Reach sub-region of Koboh.
The Southern Reach Essence in Jedi Survivor
The Southern Reach acts as one of the first main sub-regions that is more open than the linear path you’ve taken through Star Wars Jedi: Survivor and it can be easy to be overwhelmed. Hopefully you’ve been checking out your map to discover what’s available in each sub-region, even if you can’t get them all until you unlock more abilities later in the story.
Rest assured, however, that the Essence in Southern Reach can be found during your first. Take a look at your map after and you’ll want to aim for the northwest of the region by sticking to the higher ground. As you head that way, you’ll encounter a group of Boglings and off to the side of them, a Force Echo that will give you a bit more background on these lovable creatures.
Take the opportunity to pet one of them while you’re here, it will score you the Can You Pet the Bogling? Trophy/Achievement, an easy one to get cleared up right now. Just stroll up to it and press the Interact button and Cal will kneel down and pet his new furry friend.
Once you’re done greeting the local wildlife, continue in this direction into the corner and you’ll spot the Essence in question, simple as that. Interact with it and you’ll gain enough XP for a Skill Point, which will be safe from losing it if you die, as in Jedi Survivor, Skill Points are banked once you earn them. You’ll only lose XP upon death, not actual Skill Points banked making these Skill Point Essences of great value.
